    Solid, but not flashy, rice and peas variation. Worked a treat in the rice cooker, as well, for a large party. Subbed chicken stock for water, based on Breadcrumbs' review and that may have added a bit of flavor. Left out the habanero, due to serving for a large group with kids, but did add the optional tomato for more color.

    p. 410 Are you asking yourself the same thing I was. . . why is this Jamaican dish in the North American section of this book? I’m really not sure but as folks who happen to love the dish, I was keen to try out a new recipe. We thought this produced a tasty, non-traditional version of rice and peas however we do prefer the tastier, more traditional version which also would typically be made w chicken stock instead of water. We did incorporate green onions (escallion in Jamaica) which are also traditional. Photos here: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/787699#6624973
